If you or someone you know is facing charges relating to fentanyl or carfentanil possession or trafficking in Hamilton or surrounding areas, we recommend you speak to Paquette Wilhelm Criminal Lawyers as soon as possible. Fentanyl and carfentanil charges have been appearing more in criminal courts across the country. They are both opioids. Fentanyl is often mixed with other drugs, such as heroin or cocaine. Carfentanil is an even stronger opioid than fentanyl. It is also often mixed with other drugs. A conviction for possession of fentanyl or carfentanil for the purpose of trafficking can result in many years in prison. Following release, you may have difficulties obtaining a job, housing and loans, and you may lose your ability to enter countries such as the U.S. and others.
You might need a knowledgeable and experienced lawyer to handle complicated cases such as drug offences. Possession of fentanyl and carfentanil can carry serious jail sentences in Ontario and throughout Canada. Our lawyers will analyze your case and identify issues such as search and seizure in an effort to help you secure the best possible result, whether that be obtaining the best possible sentence for you after a guilty plea or representing you at trial.
